17th-Century Farthing Trade Tokens
The bulk of the tokens of this county are halfpennies and farthings, but there are as many as thirteen pennies, an
unusual proportion, surpassed, however, by the adjoining border county of Chester, which boats of twenty-four or more.
Bridgenorth was the only town in the county that issued tokens in a corporate capacity.
In the former edition eighty tokens were described--of these four have been withdrawn, as they belong to other counties, and the present list enumerates a total of ninety-nine.
